Bachelor of Applied Science

The City College curriculum is divided into four basic components, and although all City College students have the same basic core requirements, each degree program has specific requirements in the major and adjunct areas.

Major courses–are those courses in particular disciplines which lead to a bachelor’s degree.

Adjunct courses–are those required courses in areas closely allied to the major.

Core courses–are those courses which, in the liberal arts tradition, ensure the degree-seeking student a well-rounded education. All degree-seeking City College students have the following core course requirements (42 hours total):
